Eight dead in Florida nursing home following Hurricane Irma
Florida [U.S.A], Sep 14:United States President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have arrived in the Gulf coast of Florida on Thursday to survey the widespread destruction caused by the Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest ones ever reported in the Atlantic, and the relief operations. Hollywood Public Affairs Director Raelin Story said there is no official cause of death yet, but a number were having respiratory issues.
The facility has been sealed off for a criminal investigation after 115 residents, sweltering for days, were evacuated.
Walking through mobile homes ravaged by HurricaneIrma in Naples, Fla., President Trump praised first responders and residents for doing an "incredible" job on rescue and recovery.
"It may be related to a loss of power in the storm", Mr Sanchez said, adding that officers were checking in on 42 other assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the city. In suburban Fort Lauderdale, residents of an assisted-living facility that lost power were moved to similar institutions close by that had electricity. Many Florida residents' homes remain inundated and without electricity.
Ten million people are still without power in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas after Hurricane Irma.

"Basically, every house in the Keys was impacted", he said.
Debris was scattered everywhere, including refrigerators, washers and dryers, a 25-foot (8-meter) fishing boat and a Jacuzzi.
Richard Tabacco stayed with his family on the island through the storm. "We cared for them like family". "There's no gas, there's no water". Instead of going back north, many just pulled their cars over to the side of the highway, sat and waited.
"People are just absolutely shocked that someone in the staff would not know enough that a frail, elderly person is dying of heat exhaustion and would at least know to dial 911. this is what is inexcusable", Nelson said. He was told to turn around.
"In Illinois, you're not going to see a hurricane".
CT lost 3900 jobs in August
In Tulare County, the August unemployment rate was 10.6 percent, down from 10.7 percent in July but above 10.4 percent a year ago. Most of the expansion occurred in administrative and support services (+5,200), a subsector which includes employment agencies.
Almost a week after Hurricane Irma walloped Florida, the recovery mission picked up momentum as more people had electricity and schools made plans to reopen.
President Trump also answered several reporter questions.
"It takes a long time to not only to clear the pathways to get power crews in, but also fixing the infrastructure and making sure you have the right equipment" in the areas that need fixing, Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said Wednesday. "Our staff continually checked on our residents' well-being-our most important concern-to ensure they were hydrated and as comfortable as possible".
Statewide, almost 2.7 million homes and businesses still lacked power, officials said Thursday. Authorities and a few residents were finally able to reach some of the island chain Tuesday.
"They're shoving people back to a place with no resources", he said by telephone. Alabama has a small bit of coastline that's therefore susceptible to major damage when Irma hits due to storm surge.
One of the challenges in Key West is moving debris out of roadways and fixing the water infrastructure.
Some residents of the Keys were met with scenes of devastation on Tuesday after police lifted roadblocks and began allowing people to return to the string of islands off Florida's southern coast.
"We need to make sure we're doing everything we can to keep our seniors safe during this hard time", he said.
- Florida has reported 26 deaths, officials have said.
- SC had four deaths. The Florida deaths include four people who died of carbon monoxide poisoning from electric generators in two separate incidents. Details on the sixth death were not immediately known. The state, too, has its own lousy record of regulation. At least 11 people are dead on St. Martin and St. Barts, and the entirety of the former island was without communication for several hours at the peak of the storm.

Greitens put the National Guard on standby in the days leading up to the verdict as a precautionary step ahead of possible unrest. She later said that in such shootings "we must re-examine not just how we prosecute these cases but how investigate them".

Residents seeking respite flocked into the hallways and gathered around the small - too-small - portable air conditioners. But after more deaths sparked new questions about conditions at the center, the body was claimed by the medical examiner.
